Interagency Director’s Team (IDT)

The IDT was created by Georgia's Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) in order to design, manage, facilitate, and implement an integrated approach to a child and adolescent system of care that informs policy and practice, and shares resources and funding. IDT is made up of over 20 representatives from state agencies and non-governmental organizations that serve children with behavioral health needs. The group transitioned from the Children and Adolescent State Infrastructure Grant (CASIG) Interagency Workgroup to the IDT in 2011.

  • Better child and adolescent behavioral health in Georgia
